The Ultimate Brownie Sundae #IScream4ID
Wednesday, 31 July 2013
If you don’t like brownies, this one isn’t for you. This is literally brownies on brownies on brownies. On brownies.
Let me explain. International Delight has some new flavors from Coldstone Creamery. This already sounds good, right? I got to try out Founder’s Favorite, which they describe as a Brownie Sundae flavor. It tastes like chocolate and caramel – not a bad way to start the day if you use it in your coffee. But of course I couldn’t stop there.
Since the flavor is inspired by ice cream, I took it full circle and used it to make ice cream. So, ice cream flavored with an ice cream flavored creamer. Uh, never mind. All you need to know is this ice cream not only tastes like a brownie, it’s filled with chewy brownie bits. It doesn’t get better than that, plus it’s really easy to make! I recommend using these very fudgy brownies, but you can use store bought to make it even more simple.
Before I tell you how to make the Ultimate Brownie Sundaes, I’ve got good news - International Delight is hosting a Pin to Win sweepstakes to fund the Ultimate Ice Cream Social at your house this summer! Get the full rules here and visit their Pinterest board by August 15th to enter.
Ready to throw your Ultimate Ice Cream Social? You’ll definitely need these the Ultimate Brownie Sundaes. Here’s how to make ‘em:
1. Make the simple ice cream recipe at the bottom of this post. Place a brownie (or 2) in your bowl and top it with a generous scoop of brownie ice cream.
2. Drizzle some chocolate and caramel syrup on top.
3. Top with some whipped cream and more syrups. If you want to go really crazy, you could add some crumbled brownie on top…or another full brownie. I won’t judge you
- Store bought or homemade brownies
- Brownie ice cream:
